    Politicians cower: Liberal politicians are sniffing the throne of people whose allowances they should be cutting off. As the song goes, “I believe that children are our future…” Yes, they are the future, but it’s not the future. We don’t let them make decisions impacting the country for the same reason we don’t let them smoke and drink – they’re idiots. All the teaching in the world, even done properly, means nothing without real world experience, and sitting around doing a Zoom chat with friends about how oppressed people are doesn’t count as experience. Nor does having been grounded.

    Corporations pander: In the hopes of not being the next target, large companies are funding this grift thinking they’ll be spared. All they’re doing is losing the audience they should care about – people with jobs and money to buy their products – while only postponing the attacks on them. Other than a corporate meeting room, the only place on the planet where you’ll find smaller content in the front of underpants is in political office.

    Parents ignore: As long as their kid shows up at night, they don’t care what they do. Good grades or bad grades don’t matter if you don’t know what your kids are learning. An “A” on a gender studies test is about as useful as the ability to swallow live fish.

    Teachers indoctrinate: You can find high school graduates who can barely read, but know they’re victims of society. They are victims – not of society but rather of the teachers who spent more time making sure they knew they were victims and which bathrooms people should be allowed to use than they did making sure they learned to read and write.

    Consider every video you’ve seen on social media of some just-out-of-college-aged white chick screaming in the face of a black police officer about how cops are the problem. The arrogance of these people, coupled with the ignorance of never having experienced life, is a danger to the country and those around them.

    “When an officer says ‘Put your hands up,’ then put your hands up! Don’t reach for something in your pocket, your lap, your seat. There’s plenty of reason for a police officer to feel threatened, there have been multiple assaults and ambushes on police officers lately. Comply with requests from the officer, have your day in court. Don’t mouth off, or fight, or refuse to comply… that escalates the situation.”

The fatalities included a one-year-old boy riding in a car with his mother (the gunman drove up alongside and emptied his gun into the vehicle) and a 10-year-old girl struck in the head inside her home; a group of youth on the street outside her house had started shooting at another group of youth nearby. The previous weekend in Chicago, 104 people were shot, 15 fatally.”

    Look at what happened when the pink polo shirt gun guy quite reasonably grabbed his AR-15 as the cops were AWOL. St. Louis’s Soros-bought DA – who last month released all the arrested rioters – threatened to prosecute him. The media is slandering him too. A pack of jackals threatened his property, his family, and even his dog, and he’s the bad guy for not showing his belly? You see the same fake furor every time some citizen has his car surrounded by a feeding frenzy of scumbags and plows through them to escape. Ignore that the slime are now shooting people they try to trap. The idea is to make you give up instead of fight back because if you fight back, the law comes down on you instead of the criminals.

    Why is gun control such a fetish for these creeps? Because you with a gun have the ability to not just say “no” but to exact a price from those who wish to compel a “yes.” So, of course, they want to eliminate your ability to have weapons, but they also want to eliminate, as a practical matter, your ability to use them to protect yourself.

    Universities are certainly teaching our youth to be confident, loud and self-righteous. But the media blitz during these last several weeks of protests, riots and looting also revealed a generation that is poorly educated and yet petulant and self-assured without justification. How can so many so sheltered and prolonged adolescents claim to be all-knowing? Ask questions like these, and the answers ultimately lead back to the university.

    The people who want to change the American way of life, our constitution and our freedoms, are actually trying to destroy the things that give them the right to demonstrate the way they choose. If they were in any other country, especially a marxist or communist run country, they would be imprisoned or killed. They also obviously don’t know the history about Karl Marx and how many of his own people he killed. Millions

Vandals and rioters recently graffitied the front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., and are now attempting to tear down the Emancipation Memorial in D.C. as well, which depicts President Lincoln holding the Emancipation Proclamation and freeing an African-American slave. This memorial was funded by freed slaves.

    In a stunning tweet Monday evening, which has since been deleted, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) said, “Trump has disrespected Native communities time and again. He’s attempted to limit their voting rights and blocked critical pandemic relief. Now he’s holding a rally glorifying white supremacy at Mount Rushmore—a region once sacred to tribal communities.” The tweet is referring to a fireworks event being held on July 3rd at Mt. Rushmore to celebrate America’s Independence before the 4th of July holiday. It is an unfortunate escalation that obviously crossed the lines, and within an hour was surreptitiously taken down by the DNC with no apology, correction, or explanation.

    In every country with a more permissive drug regime, all outcomes are better. Countries like Switzerland and Portugal, where drugs are decriminalized, don’t have these problems that we have with drug overdoses.” In 2001, Portugal decriminalized all drug use. Instead of punishing drug users, they offer medical help. Deaths from overdoses dropped sharply. In 2017, Portugal had only 4 deaths per million people. The United States had 217 per million. “In a society, you will have people who misbehave. “But that doesn’t mean you should punish all of us because someone can’t handle this activity.” It’s time to end the drug war

    Protesters say America’s criminal justice system is unfair. It is. Courts are so jammed that innocent people plead guilty to avoid waiting years for a trial. Lawyers help rich people get special treatment. A jail stay is just as likely to teach you crime as it is to help you get a new start. Overcrowded prisons cost a fortune and increase suffering for both prisoners and guards. There’s one simple solution to most of these problems: End the war on drugs. What drug prohibition did is exactly what alcohol prohibition did a hundred years ago: increase conflict between police and citizens. Our drug laws do more harm than drugs.

    Democrats have tiptoed around calling China out for being complacent. China knew they had a deadly virus on their hands. It took them six days to alert the world about the coronavirus’ ability to spread from human-to-human. The World Health Organization knew about Taiwan’s concerns about the possibility of the coronavirus turning into a pandemic, yet they did nothing. To make matters even worse, China prevented researchers from trying to find out how the coronavirus started and President Xi Jinping personally asked Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to delay publishing vital information about the Wuhan coronavirus. Instead of focusing on holding China accountable for unleashing this virus on the world, Democrats have been focused on President Trump referring to the coronavirus as the “Chinese virus.”

      So, how many times did you call the PD, and (if) you did, did you give them an address? Actually you just came here to whine, but nobody cares!!!

    GEERS MC: Beautiful trees on State Street butchered and ruined by City hired contractor last year and street department this year. What used to be a beautiful block of trees has become a HACK JOB.

      Exactly where did this happen, be specific. FYI, the trees in the parking belong to the city, so they can do anything to them they see fit. stop whining and do something.

    Yes, there is “white privilege.” But it isn’t me. Don’t try to hang that guilt trip on me. I have no white guilt. This son of a working man has earned every ounce of my success…..

    My father struggled his entire life as a working-class man and died with an estate of nothing (other than his home). We are the “silent majority” that supports President Donald Trump. We’ve never caught a whiff of “white privilege…..”

    “●Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.
    ●It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
    ●Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
    ●Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.
    ●Never say “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off. (I prefer the sound of a round being chambered when you load a shotgun)
    ●The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second..

    What does defunding the police really mean? Well, just look at the looting and violence that happened when police were ordered to stand down during recent riots. Everyone agrees that Minneapolis officer Derek Chauvin behaved very wrongly in killing George Floyd. Despite there still being no evidence yet that the officer was racist, it is assumed that racism motivated the white cop’s actions…

    I learned to fight, knocked out a few bullies, became an athlete. That’s where I first learned about “white privilege.” As a matter of fact, almost every I knew had it. They were almost all lucky-sperm-club, spoiled-brat, filthy-rich kids with rich, powerful fathers who opened every door for them, greased every wheel. They had everything handed to them on a silver platter, with no effort necessary… .

    It’s funny how Mt Rushmore has been around since 1927, finished in 1942 and never had anyone make a statement about two slave owners. When I went to Mt Rushmore, I saw 4 Great presidents that made huge steps in our country and for our country!!

    What’s the governor’s plan for dealing with all the new virus cases in Iowa? At this rate I might start heading back to Idaho where it’s safer.

    How stupid does orange man and his little buddy booboo pence think the American people are? The orange guy lies and booboo swears to it. Now booboo says the pandemic is under control and we’re in better shape than when it started. This was on the same day when 55,000 new cases were reported. How many suns are there in the dream world lala land that they live in. Even trumpanzees should be able to see past this B.S.

        I don’t listen to any cable network news, buddy. Fox, CNN, MSNBC are all equally terrible and biased. I don’t even know who the other two people you mention are?

        I do know from observing facts that the healthcare system is nowhere near overrun and this virus has a fatality rate of less than a single percent. Even the most susceptible persons still have a fatality rate less than 10 %.

        This is no pandemic. This is a mild virus that the media has whipped into a fear frenzy. Get back to work.

    Before I relocated here from Idaho, I’d heard that the north side of Mason City was dangerous. Is it true? I’m concerned about going north of Fairway tomorrow. Would it be safe?
